PLACE FOR CALHOUN STATUE.
Position Chosen in Statuary Hall
Pleases Governor Ansel.
Washington, May 24.-As the re
sult of a consultation held here today
between Governor Ansel, F. W. Ruck
stuhl and Ellott Woods, superinten
dent of the capitol buildings and
grounds, th-a Calhoun statue is to have
an excellent position in Statuary Hall
in the capitol when it is placed there,
the latter part of September, by M.
Ruckstuhl. Governor and Mrs. Ansel
.were early visitors at the capitol this
morning, and after lunching and look
ing in on the senate, the house, the
supreme court and other places of in
teTest, they met Mr. Ruckstuhl and
Mr. Woods and agreed upon the lo
eatrion of the statue.
The point chosen is a spot near the
big door leading into the house cham
ber, and second from the main aisle
in the hall. This site was chosen be

tween two other large ones, and will
look better there than were its sur
roundings smaller. Just 'behind the
statue is a large window, which will
admit suffieient light and whiah will
permit the statue to be seen at its best
advantage. Mr. Ruckstahl said that
he thought the South Carolinians who
come to the unveiling would like it.
He has promised to have -it in place
by the latter part of September, and
it is proposed by Governor Ansel to
have the unveiling exercises take
place in December, when all the mem
bers of the Calhoun commission will
be present and make the occasion a
The governor, in his gallant way,
told Superintendent Woods that he
wanted the statue so placed that the
two lady members of the commission
could do the unveiling with ease, and
he added that there was no use to
say grace because he was confident
that the latter accompaniment would
not be lacking. Mr. Woods said ev
erything possible would be done for
the pleasure and convenience of the
ladies in the party and he would lend
his best efforts toward making the oc
casion a success.
The governor said tonight that he
was more than pleased with the loea

HENEY WATTEESO~N AN~D
THE IQUOR QUESTION.
Hon Henr Watterson, in reply to
a frendandwarcomrade, refuses to
concede thiat to excessive liquor drink
ing alone is atrributable most of the
crimes of .the day; nor will he admit
that to liduor is attribule more crime
than to other causes. He declares
that there are many vices which arise
out of our frail humanity and afflict
-society which are not arristbutable to
Mr. Watterson holds tha.t drinking
to excess is confined to a very small
percentage of every community, and
contends that of late years there 'has
been a steady diminishing of the
drink habit, due to the better en
lightment of men. In the Latin
countries, such as Spain, France and
Italy, drunkenness is unknown. In
Germany, where beer is the national
beverage, there is no such thing as
drunkenness. "But, in Maine, sixty
years of drastic prohibition 'have not
sufficed to extinguish drunkenness or
regenerate the people."'
As a matter of fact, this long term
of prohibition in Maine has brought
~in.to being a retinue of evils never
before known, alth.ough inevitable to
:the effort to control by legislaive en
~actment the "appetites and indivi
dual liberties of the people.''
Mr. Watterson, always interesting,
"Our friend of West Tennessee is
mistaken in his theory that prohibi
tion prohibits. He is mistaken in his
~theory that wicked husbands and bad
fathers may be turned into good hus
bands and fond fathers by act ofw. as
sembly. The atempt to do it en'eils
wanton impositions to begin with and
* oreasts untoward conditions to end
wvith; sa~crificing the freedom of the
people without elevating the morals
of the people. The better way, and
the sufficient way, is to close the evil
places where the community united
enough to close them and to keep
. them closed, each the judge of its own
exciee arrangemeits, leaving every in
idividual free to develop upon his
own lines of conscience and conduct.
Already the government is doing too
much in restraint of men. Something
must be left to moral agencies. Force
impelled by clericalism and hysteri
calisnm, equally undiscrimninating and
despotic, never yet did any lasting
good. but always in the end, surely
comes the irremediable wrong."
We know now, down here in Geor
gia. that prohibition does not prohib
it. We can not draw a lesson in the
matter from our own city of. Augusta,
for it has been bioped that .thene
wIud bI),? proibition of consumption
of liquor at ihis point. The fact that
there is the legal sale of liquor two
hundred yards from the city limits
in the adjoining State of South Car
olina-is testimony that those who
enacted the prohibition laws did not
'hope to bring about a halt in the
drinking of liquor in this city. But
,wehavethe testimony of towns that are
not similarly situated, geographically,
that the prohibition laws have not re
sulted in putting a stop to liquor
Kentucky may pass all the laws
against "demon rum"' that she wish
es, but she will not be.able to enforce
prohibition of consumption any more
than has Georgia, Maine or the other
States that have enacted statutes of

Good Advice Regardinig The Preven
tion of Coughs and Colds.
If people would only properly for
tify and strengthen their system,
about 98 per cent. 'of coughs, colds,
and pneumonia might be avoided.
These troubles are simply the result
of weakness, which produces a catar
rhal condition of the mucous mem
brane, which is as an internal skin of
the body. When this skin is weaken
ed, it becomes infected with germs
which are carried through the system
by tshe blood. These parasites attack
and break these delicate tissues and
set up a soreness which produce what
is in reality an external scrofula.
The only thing that will eure
coughs and colds and prevent pneu
moniia is a medication which is ab
sorbed and carried by the blood so
that the diseased membranec is disin
feeted, cleaned, soothed and healed.
We have a remedy which we hon
estly believe infallable and unsurpas
sable for the prevention and cure of
coughs, colds and all catarrhal condi
tions. It is the prescription of a
famous physician, who has an envia
ble reputation of 30 years of cures
gained through the use of this medi
eine. We promise to either effect a
eure in every case or make no charge
for the medicine. We urge everybody
in Newberfiry who has need of such
a medicine to try Rexall Mucu-Tone.
It stands to reason that we could
not afford to make such statements
and give our own personal guarantee
to this remedy if we were not abso
lutely positive that we could substan
tiate our claim in every particular,
and we see no reason why anyone
should hesitate to accept our offer
and try it. We have two sizes of
Rexall Mucu-Tone. Prices 50c. and
$1.00. Sometimes a 50e. bottle is
sufficient for a cure. As a general
thing, the most chronic case is cured
with an average of three large bot
tles. Remember, the medicine will
cost you nothing if you are not satis
fied in every particular. Gilder &
